KINDS OF STEP LIGHTS
- Recessed. Recessed lights are those kinds of lights that are hidden in the wall, or in this case, step. They are flush to the surface, and oftentimes, you can even walk on them. The choice here rests largely on your previous choice of where you are putting your step lights, either on the step, beside the step, or under the step. If you are putting your step lighting on the step, you’ll definitely want recessed lights for safety reasons so you don’t trip on them in the middle of the night.
- Surface-mounted. Surface-mounted steps rest above the step. Many people like the surface-mounted light look, especially if you’ve chosen decorative light fixtures. For step lights that are beside the step in the wall, you could choose either recessed or surface-mounted steps. For under the step lighting, The Light House Gallery in Missouri recommends that you base your choice depending on your steps. Sometimes surface-mounted lights are too prominent, drawing attention away from the steps. Hence, many people like to recess this kind of step light.
- Hardwired. Hardwired lights are connected to your electrical grid and are often operated with a switch. In general, you can find much more stylish hardwired lights than you can battery operated that look cool, sleek, and emit a higher-quality light.
- Battery operated. Battery operated lights run off batteries. While very easy to install, these are much more work in the long run, especially when the battery goes dead. Battery operated lights are usually seen outdoors. The Light House Gallery in Missouri warns that battery operated lights also can require more maintenance than other kinds of lighting solutions. Battery operated lights will work with for all of your step light needs. However, for lighting within your steps, we recommend hardwired step lights simply due to the wide variety of styles available with hardwired lighting over battery operated lighting.
